Hardinge Conical Mill Capacity

The following conclusions on the work of the Hardinge mill are based on data furnished to the writer by the Hardinge Conical Mill Co. in the form of the mesh cards hereto appended. Energy units (E. U.) and relative mechanical efficiencies (R. M. E.) are computed by the “volume method” of Stadler. Screen apertures used are the average apertures of testing screens of the meshes given.hardinge-conical-mill-danish-pebbles

Table I is a summary of the data presented on the mesh cards. Table II is taken from Table I.

Apparently the ball mill does more work per unit of power input than the pebble mill, while the pebble milk is, in the same way, more efficient than the tube mill in the one instance cited. Nos. 107 and 142 show the effect of overloading the mill. The relative mechanical efficiencies in these two cases are raised above the average at the expense of the character of the product.
